Writing Flash Fiction (Self-Paced) Course

Are you flash-curious?

Maybe you are already in love with these tiny stories. Maybe you come from another tradition and are eager to try your hand at the form. Either way, this course is your invitation to flash fiction.

Flash fiction is redefining how we tell stories. By embracing this compressed form, all writers–from poets to novelists to nonfiction writers–are cultivating a new set of skills and creating an entirely new kind of story.

In this course you will try new approaches to the compressed narrative, examine what makes successful flash fiction, and generate your own original flash pieces.

This is an extended version of my 3-week live workshop which writers always said “went too fast!” It has 5 Units and I’m offering some bonuses including a private Facebook space to converse with other writers taking the course. As a self-paced class you can go at your own speed through the lectures, examples and assignments.

The cost is $97 and this gives you 12 full months of access to all the materials.

This course is open to writers with all levels of experience in the form, whether you are brand new to flash fiction or a veteran flasher looking to hone your craft.

SCULPTING FLASH FICTION

August 13-Sept 2

Update: SOLD OUT–(Please feel free to join my mailing list below for announcements of upcoming classes)

Editing is the most important part of the writing process. As serious writers, you know it’s through the editing process that we begin to refine and sculpt our messages.But just as writing flash fiction requires a different set of skills, so does editing flash fiction.

article-2337449-1a32cffb000005dc-882_634x439In this 3-week intensive we will use the tools of ambiguity and implication; we will learn the different between chipping and chopping; we will learn how to shrink-wrap and swap text. You will learn how to achieve the specific needs of flash fiction as I guide you and other participants to edit your real works in progress.

Participants should have a basic understanding of flash fiction and come to the class with flash pieces already in progress. Each participant will have the opportunity to submit 1-2 stories per week.

This is an online workshop format class limited to 8 participants.

“Nancy has a way with words, certainly, but she also has a way with people that allows her classes to take on a spirit that exceeds instruction or even guidance. Her consistent support and empathy is tempered with gentle nudges to step out of our comfort zones and approach our work, not with abandon, but with careful attention and encouragement.”
